    This holiday was wonderful. The cottage was lovely well equipped and a real home from home. We were there during the bad snow. The cottage was warm and cosy. Sitting in the sauna and hot tub was an added bonus when it's -7 outside. Couldn't fault a thing. Would recommend to people wanting to relax and enjoy beautiful surroundings. In my opinion ignore the negative comments on here they are unfounded.

    Not very clean at all, too much clutter everywhere, bed so uncomfortable I slept on the very old leather sofa. Lots of noise from the road when sitting in the lounge. Summer house with hot tub leaves a lot to be desired. Struggled to get our 4x4 in and out of the parking space so parked on the road. Beautiful location and cottage was quaint but needs a good clear out and cleaning.

    Best long weekend away ever! Lovely cottage, so comfy and cute. The private hot tub and sauna was an added bonus. It snowed whilst we were there which made the location even more gorgeous. Hosts left a bottle of bubbly and chocolates, which was a nice touch. Making plans for our next visit, can’t wait!

    We had a really relaxing pre-Christmas break. Manod had everything we needed, and the Christmas tree was a lovely touch.

    Manod Cottage is definately worth revisting, but to make full use of the Hot Tub and Sauna, it would have to be in the warmer months due to the location of the Summer House, and its lack of heating. Overall enjoyed the stay, location helped by very close Bus Stop especially for those who like to leave the car locked up, like we do

    Nice cosy cottage, was great for a cheap weekend away, it is a little tired and worn in places and could do with some updating, however it had everything we needed, the bottle and chocolates was a nice little touch and the hot tub and sauna was an added bonus

    Good location, shame about weather, hot tub and sauna a welcome addition. Stayed in quite a few cottages over the years that we've rated better.

    Know the North Wales area well from childhood holidays & recent stays. Had a great time, even caught two days where the temperature hit plus 25 deg so managed to hit the beach too. The cottage is in a great location, just 15 minutes away from the West Coast beaches of Black Rock, Borth-y-Gest, etc (plus a large Tesco in Porthmadog), 40 mins from the North & a mere 5 minutes away from the newish Zip Line attractions. There's also plenty of walks which we needed for the dogs & a hot tub to relax in after the treks. In summary this Cottage is great for a small group of adults especially with dogs.

    A lovely well furnished and well equipt cottage. Sauna and hot tub a real bonus for achey limbs and wet weather 😃 Central to all visitor attractions in North Cornwall. The only downfall of the village is that there isn't anywhere to eat out within walking distance.
